According to a recent report published by the UK-based project management best practices company by the name of Axelos, speed will soon replace the importance of accuracy as the measure of general success. According to the report, in a survey taken both programme and portfolio professionals note that nearly 85% of the project managers around the globe believe that Agile methodologies around the world will grow in importance over the next few years to come. It also shows that 89% agree that there is a growing need for creativity and flexibility in project management.
- Axelos, a global project management company, believes that as business practices evolve speed will trump accuracy as the measure of a successful project delivery.
- Agile methodologies are on the rise, according to the Axelos report, entitled, Future Project Manager Professional.
- Project management commentator and coach, John Yorke, describes Agile as less a set of guiding principals and more of a mindset.
“Project managers can only meet evolving business needs if their response to project delivery is fast-paced, flexible and business-oriented”
